Re: “We’re Calling It: Pat McCrory Is Toast

C'mon, IndyWeek, lighten up and show some professional restraint. Showing a photo of McCrory (whom I did not vote for and never will) with simulated bullet holes and a caption referring to a "death warrant" is downright shameful.

Re: “A Letter for a Life

Wow that was tough to read. I work with troubked youth and have some horribe stories but this is worse. He definitely deserves another chance. Yes what he did was terrible however we must remember he never knew right only showed wrong and never had love only hate. He paid many times over before this horrible incident happened. I know its hard to see him as a good person or easy to see him as a muderer, however fact is most of his life he was not looked at as a god's child but treated as non existant and a place to throw hate anger and never love. Its a miracle he survived. God would never want this outcome for ronald wayne frye so lets show him what love really is.
God bless and hope they do whats right. Give life show love forgiveness to the abused. Help the weak!

Thanks derek m

Where was the triangle steak house? I don't recall a steak house owned by anyone in that area?

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

The opportunity to work with this event, as a volunteer behind the scenes and as a newly minted 69 year-old actress, has led to a passion in me for the stage. I have been cast as Abby Brewster in Arsenic and Old Lace. We open on Friday in Wake Forest-- thank you to Ashley Popio for lighting the fire in my heart to take on such a demanding, and delightful, role!

Re: “The Morning Roundup: GOP Emails, Confiscated Guns, and Another McCrory Ad

Common sense would allow anyone to see that a reasonable and prudent traveler would bring along a LOADED handgun as protection from thugs and bandits. In America, we have given the thugs and bandits a badge and call them "TSA agents". The TSA serves no useful purpose and should be abolished.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: GOP Emails, Confiscated Guns, and Another McCrory Ad

From the original article "We have more than 10 million people a year traveling through the airport, 30,000 people a day passing through here," Roughly 7 million travelers and 36 weapons found. That you would be in the airport at the same time as one of these weapons is way less than your chance of being struck by lightning. Also a statement in the original article "Airport officials say the people who tried to bring the weapons through explained to officers they either forgot or didn't realize they were carrying." What??? That they would use these excuses tells me they should never have been carrying in the first place. I can't imagine how that is possible.

Re: “It's time to rise up against voter suppression by Republicans

Your unnecessarily lengthy spiel in defense of Republicans suppressing votes, doesn't seem to be needed, as like you said, even after the Democrats passed legislations to make voting easier, Republicans won across the state. So, what are you so afraid of?

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

I appreciate this honest and realistic assessment of WTF 2016, and I applaud the bravery and audacity of Ashley Popio and all of the WTF collaborators for putting on the festival knowing that it was never going to be perfect. I am so glad we did not wait. I am so glad we did not try to find the right time. I am so glad we went for it.

Re: “Assessing the First Outing—and the Future—of the Women's Theatre Festival

Succeed or fail, Popio and all the women and allies who made WTF happen deserve major kudos. This has been long overdue and sorely needed in our theatrical community -- and beyond. Looking forward to seeing its continued growth and strength.

Voters are already offered free transportation and a free ID card. What more do people want? I have an idea, how about a wake up call? Darn GOP doesn't offer wake up calls!

Re: “Paperhand Puppet Intervention’s The Beautiful Beast Makes Merry With Monsters of Myth and Memory

I saw this show in Chapel Hills. This was the first time I had seen a Paperhand's show. It was magnificent. The music produced and performed by Jennifer Curtis and the band took it beyond the next level.
